Kitchen Update - Sept. 7, 2010
Here you can see the difference between grouted and un-grouted.
Grouting time! We finally got around to grouting the backsplash this weekend, which was much easier than I thought it would be...although it was MESSY. We chose white grout, as we figured a darker color would just draw attention to any...ummm...imperfections in our workmanship ;-)
Right:Edge of Counter and Tile Left: Sink and Grouted Tiles
It actually went pretty fast, but all the smaller, cramped areas were a big pain to get at, and by the end, my back was killing me. Nevertheless, we grouted and cleared off the excess and are really pleased with the results! It's amazing how different it looks with the grout in, it looks like it's been there forever, and I can barely remember how it looked before.
Finished, grouted tiles...whew!
We have to mist the grout for 3 days before we can seal it and caulk the edges...but we are in the home stretch...now on to the area above the stove!
